      This is a great easy to follow recipe... I made this once and added pre fried chicken and onion one layer and plain parboiled rice at the top (ends up at the bottom of the rice cake). So. Hungry. 🤤

                                  You cant make perfect "TACHIN" if you dont ask a persian and if you dont have nice smell of persian rice and persian saffron.If you have Iranian saffron, you dont need to use this huge amount of it! And you dont have right reciepe too!So your saffron rice wont be the best. I promise!

                                                  I eat Kosher, and by kosher you can't have meat and dairy together. So I have to eliminate Yogurt and butter. So, what can I subsidies them with.

The ingredients are very straightforward. Ok, I screamed a bit at the amount of saffron needed. But, the reactions you'd get would be so worth it. 

                                                                                        I've made a savoury version of this (with roasted veggies instead of barberries) and it tasted f-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c. Now, with Andy's semi-fruity version with the barberries, it went very well with spicy food. This recipe us highly recommended!
